Steve Rosenberg This Ornate ghost pipefish was photographed in the Dumaguete area of Negros Island in the Philippines. (Ornate ghost pipefish, Solenostomus paradoxus, male variation). With patience and a little luck, I was able to isolate the pipefish against the contrasting color of a crinoid.

Derek Emmett Nice!

Michael Lawrence Excellent Steve! As stated in the I Ching, Perseverance Furthers.

Joseph Azzopardi Very nice, I wish one day I take photo of a ghost pipefish.

Ron Silver Also known as the Harlequin Ghost Pipefish.

Dray Van Beeck Nice ghost pipe fish. 105mm +10 diopter no cropping.

Alex Tattersall A baby!

Barbara Caldwell How can you tell if its a baby or not?

Alex Tattersall I think babies are more transparent, but could be corrected if I’m not right

Dray Van Beeck I think it was full grown. Solenostomus paradoxus.

Dray Van Beeck Sorry Alex, you were right according to a book I just found. It's the juvenile from the Ornate ghost pipefish (Solenostomus paradoxus)
